EMERSON, N.J. — An Emerson dentist saved children from potential cavities after collecting 75 pounds of candy to send to U.S. troops fighting overseas.Archer Katz also made a matching donation for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Katz — of Emerson Dental Arts — traded children $10 Toys R Us gift cards for leftover Halloween candy for his 10th Annual Candy Buy Back program. He's also donating $400 to the hospital.

Katz has done it before, but this year was the best that Lisa Karpowich, his marketing and social media manager, has seen.

"It makes us feel great to do something for the community and help St. Jude's and help the troops," she said. "It was a win-win-win."
